“The hipster movement du jour is that meat is the new vegan. Or bacon is the new vegan. There are all these cool-kid restaurants right now where there just isn’t anything vegetarian on the menu. And the other new trend is, like, ‘Don’t even ask us to modify anything,’ so even if it’s just bacon bits on the spinach salad, you can’t ask them to remove the bacon bits. Which is kind of tedious; that sort of bothers me.” —Death Cab for Cutie’s Chris Walla on un-hipsterish vegetarianism. [Emusic]
